Happy Summer time....
Newsletter time again. With the season changing from hot to HOT I want to remind everyone now is not the time to leave your pets or children in the car unattended. As if there was ever a good time. Heat Kills! It's also against the law. I know you know. But when this happens the guilty person always says " I only ran in for a minute." Until the weather cools down please consider leaving them home, or always have the AC running and someone in the car with them at all times. Here's something you probably haven't considered. Do you wear sunglasses or squint because of the bright sun this time of year. What about your dog, It's just as bright on his eyes. I bet if you observe him you will see that he squints too.
Next time you take him for a walk out of the kindness of your heart, Take off your shoes the next time you walk on blacktop or concrete... Please just think!
Recalls, pet food changes galore...
With so many pet food recalls and pet food companies changing hands please remember to stay informed about your pets food and snacks. What was good yesterday may not be today. Two ways to keep informed is to subscribe to Susan Thixtons Newsletter. You can do this from her website www.Truthaboutpetfood.com Susan is a pet food safety advocate and by subscribing to her newsletter you will get the latest updates on pet food safety. The other way I mentioned is to check out www.dogfoodadvisor.com where you can see what pet foods are rated and find your best choice. If you are still going to grocery stores to buy your pet food and treats-STOP! Please check out these links/websites today. It will give you some peace of mind and possibly even save your pet from sickness or death.
Did you know?....
Xylitol-can cause possible liver failure in dogs? This is found in many sugar free gums, candies, baked goods and toothpaste for examples. It is a natural occurring ingredient that could have far reaching negative health effects on dogs, including death.
Schedule your time today...
Just a reminder-Summer is here. Folks are going on vacation and leaving town. Please call and schedule your time away with us at least two weeks in advance, more if possible. We are filling up fast. If you are a new client remember you will have to schedule a Meet and Greet prior to your actual departure date. This is so we can all meet each other and finalize your paperwork and lock in the time needed. You only need to do this once. After that any time needed in the future is only a phone call away. Please call now.
